The Construction of Cosmopolitanized News of Climate Change at the Micro-scale: Representation, Production and Communication
The previous chapter constructed the ‘macro-scale’ of cosmopolitan spheres of climate change communication across three parameter: arenas, actors and communicative spaces. In this chapter, we take this discussion further by examining the ‘micro-scale’. The term ‘micro-scale’ focuses specifically on the ‘logic’ of producing local news in the ‘loco-digital’ arena. In contrast to traditional approaches that distinguish between ‘digital’ and ‘non-digital’, this approach incorporates the reflexivity of digital engagement and local perceptions and identifies the loco-digital arena as a localized, yet transnationally connected discursive sphere.
